The monthly long-term chart for Guidewire shows a consistent uptrend for about five years, starting from 2016. Prices had remained within a clear channel throughout this period except for the pandemic-driven crash in March 2020, when the prices last broke the channel. More recently, prices fell by about 25% over the first three months of 2021. However, prices in April 2021 seem to be bouncing back up from close to the bottom of the longer-term trend. A long position currently offers an excellent risk-reward ratio. The likely target is $130 and can place a stop loss below the bottom trend line at around $95.
